"If we remain united by mutual charity,
Holy Cross will grow like a mighty tree
and constantly shoot forth new limbs
whose branches will produce yet others,
and all nourished from the same sap and
endowed with the same life"
- Blessed Basil Moreau.

Hail the Cross, Our only Hope

On 1st March 1837, after a Fundamental union between the brothers of Saint Joseph and the auxiliary priests, Blessed Basil Moreau became the founding father of the Congregation of Holy Cross (Sainte Croix). This union at the village of Sainte Croix (Holy Cross) led to the birth of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Holy Cross grew fast in France in 1840 to 1860 with the foreign mission that had full zeal of Moreau. The first overseas mission to Algeria was in 1840 from Le Mans with approval from Rome.


“…while we prepare useful citizens for society, we shall likewise do our utmost to prepare citizens for heaven.”
Blessed Basil Moreau, CSC
Our
Mission

We participate in God’s mission as “Educators in the Faith” reaching out to the afflicted and in a preferential way to the poor and oppressed” (C2:12-13).
We thereby seek to embody with zeal the mission of Jesus, for by our baptism and our vowed life as apostolic religious we share in his prophetic ministry. And we do so as priests and Brothers together in a single religious family, founded by Blessed Basile-Antoine Marie Moreau.                                                        

Our
Vision

We prepare people that we minister to, for better times than ours as Educators in the faith. We educate the heart and the mind. We live our Charism and Spirituality in our ministries of Parishes, Schools, Colleges/Universities, Holy Cross Family Ministries, health centers and formation houses.

Our
Values


1. To live faithfully in conformity to Christ, our life in Holy Cross must be marked by certain characteristics or common values that flow from our spirituality, mission and community life:
2. Trust in Divine Providence that makes us dependent upon God in all things

Our Impact

A Catholic founded school under the Priests and Brothers of the Congregation of Holy Cross.
